Miriam Körner

Intrigued by the vast wilderness of the Canadian North Miriam Körner moved to northern Saskatchewan from Germany. With newly acquired chainsaw skills, she built a tiny cabin tucked away in the bush, learned to run a dog team, and how to survive in the wilderness. Not long after her inauguration into the Canadian life-style she set out on her first thousand-mile dog team and canoe expedition along the ancient routes of the peoples who first inhibited this country.

Miriam shares her love and concern for the natural world through her writing, photography and visual art. She is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning author and illustrator. Her tiles include the YA novels Qaqavii and Yellow Dog (Red Deer Press), and picture book collaborations When the Trees Crackle with Cold and When We Had Sled Dogs (YNWP)Her newest book Fox and Bear (Red Deer Press) is a modern fable about how always wanting more often leaves us with less.
